Facebook is most well-known as a social media platform, but the online site has recently unveiled a tech product called Surround 360 to help consumers better capture their lives through video. The device is a 360-degree disc video system featuring 17 different cameras lined up to capture footage. The device is aimed at help consumers better capture the moments they wish to document and share on platforms such as Facebook.

The Surround 360 is a rounded disc made from plastic that lines up 14 different cameras to a central hub. The cameras are synced to capture footage simultaneously to create a 360 visual memory along with three fish eye wide-angle lenses located on the top and bottom. Together the cameras capture footage at all possible angles without any distortion or misalignment, to create the perfect 360-video.
